Hometown Histories (Stories Worth Remembering) Series is coming to the Mr. Local History Project on Sunday, May 3, 2020 from 1-3pm.

Wouldn’t it be great you could gather a bunch of locals from the area to tell stories of how it used to be in the area? Maybe you grew up here? Whether you’re a teller or a listener, we’d love to have you at our new series called “Hometown Histories- Stories Worth Remembering.’

The new series is a modified version of the popular “Elder Voices” series that was started by Brooks Betz when he was the Programming Chair at the local historical society. “The new series will be different as it will mobilize and come to the story tellers,” stated Betz, the founder of the Mr. Local History Project and Bernards Township’s official historian. “This time we’re going to bring the series on the road to places like Fellowship Village and Ridge High School. “

The format is simply a circle of chairs full of invited and walk-in guests who are primed with a few questions about the area. They turn the video camera on and the discussion takes off.

If you’re from Bernardsville, Bernards Township, Bedminster, Far Hills, Peapack, or Gladstone you’re invited to join the discussion. Guests from any area are welcome to join and learn.

“It’ll be a fantastic two hours of stories that you probably never heard,” stated Betz.
